Customer Reviews

One of the best app ever

This app is amazing! The best play along technique I have ever come across. I normally never write a review, however this app is just so helpful, that I feel obliged to thank the makers.
The app shows where you are on the sheet music, you can slow the tempo, change the pitch, loop, everything you ever needed to learn a song from scratch. Kudos to the developers, thank you so much!
The only minor issue I found with my Bose internet speaker the prompt is not synced.

Great app!

I love it; however, not a very big catalog of songs to choose from yet! Appears this app is still in it's infancy.


Truly an amazing app. Cheap and easily accessible sheet music. It's exactly what I've needed
